Ingredion and SweeGen Make Sweet Deal to Work Together Globally


In Illinois, Ingredion Incorporated, a company that converts corn, potatoes and other natural items into ingredients for biomaterial products used in food, paper, and packaging, is partnering with SweeGen, Inc., which develops stevia sweeteners for the food and beverage markets. Ingredion has agreed to be SweeGen’s exclusive global distributor which means they will distribute SweeGen’s sweeteners in the United States at first and then other countries as they receive regulatory approvals in those countries. SweeGen is looking forward to using Ingredion’s market base to expand their distribution globally, while Ingredion is using SweeGen’s stevia sweetener as a new product offering to its customers looking for a natural sweetener, specifically in the food and beverage industries.
